Mental health online workshops for veterans and employers

Telford & Wrekin Council (TWC) is hosting a series of free, online workshops aimed at supporting current and former veterans and their families.

From the TWC Newsroom post about the workshops:

The new initiative is funded as a part of the borough’s Armed Forces Covenant which is a partnership that works to remove barriers that serving personnel, their families and veterans may face in accessing services and support.

The workshops ‘Veteran Mental Health – Understanding  the signs and finding support’ are free to attend. The first two stand-alone sessions take place on Monday 30th November between 10am and 1pm and Tuesday 8th December between 1pm and 4pm.

The sessions are led by veteran and professional trainer Pete White who has experienced his own mental health difficulties after leaving the military and now travels the Country to offer training and support to others in a similar situation.

Veterans, family members and also local employers will be provided with information which will help them understand more about the mental health struggles veterans face and what support is available.

People interested in joining the workshops can email TWC for details on how to attend.
